Until I read this article. About a spider. In a cave. With something called "sickle claws" that is every bit as scary as it sounds.
Scouring the caves of Southwest Oregon, scientists have made the incredible discovery of a fearsome apex predator with massive, sickle claws. No, it's not the Velociraptor fromJurassic Park: it's a large spider that is so unique scientists were forced to create a new taxonomic family for it.
"This is something completely new," lead author of a paper on the species, Charles Griswold with the California Academy of Sciences, told SFGate. "It's a historic event."
Perhaps it's time to take up cross-stitching after all.
